GO TO DARK GETHSEMANE.
Go to dark Gethsemane,
Ye that feel the tempter’s power;
Your Redeemer’s conflict see;
Watch with Him one bitter hour;
Turn not from His griefs away;
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.
See Him at the judgment hall,
Beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
See Him meekly bearing all!
Love to man His soul sustained.
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
Learn of Christ to bear the cross.
Calvary’s mournful mountain climb;
There adoring at His feet,
Mark that miracle of time,
God’s own sacrifice complete;
“It is finished!” hear Him cry;
Learn of Jesus Christ to die.
Early hasten to the tomb
Where they laid His breathless clay
All is solitude and gloom;
Who hath taken Him away?
Christ is risen! He meets our eyes.
Saviour, teach us so to rise. Amen!
Thank You Jesus!
